PHILLIP ISLAND, NEXT STEP TO THE TITLE
After a brief stop in Indonesia, to visit Astra Honda Factory and to give his support to Cari_Aman Safety Riding Campaign, Marc Marquez moved on to Phillip Island for the second round of the triple flyaways.
Marc, who counts Phillip Island among his favourite tracks, is fresh off of scoring the 100th podium finish of his amazing career, after an exciting battle with Title contender Andrea Dovizioso at Motegi. With three rounds remaining, the 24-year-old Marquez has an 11-point advantage over the Italian Dovizioso in the Championship standings.
Marc Marquez has 2 wins—1×125 (2010) and 1xMotoGP (2015)—plus 2 podiums and 4 pole positions.

Marc Márquez: “We go to Australia very motivated after Japan, where we scored good points at a track that’s normally tough for us, and in quite difficult conditions. I really look forward to this weekend because Phillip Island is an incredible racetrack, one of my favourite. It’s difficult because it’s very physical, with many hard and fast changes in direction, but I enjoy it a lot every year and generally I think it’s a better track for us than Motegi. I hope for good weather, and then we’ll see. We’ll work hard to try and find the best setup and keep fighting hard for this Championship.”
